Summit High School Auditorium Renovation

Summit School District
Project Type: Renovation
Project Area: 900-Seat Auditorium

As Summit’s Architect-of-Record EI Associates design a comprehensive renovation of the existing High School Auditorium. Originally constructed in the late 1950’s, the High School Auditorium was in need of upgrade. The project included the design of a new floating “cloud” ceiling system to improve acoustics as well as new stage flooring, curtains and a new Brickhouse rigging system. Existing wood paneling was refinished and new flooring installed. New auditorium seating was specified to accommodate 900 people and address ADA guidelines.

In addition the Auditorium required modernization of its electrical systems including new stage lighting systems and controls. New general area lighting, aisle lighting and decorative pendant and wall sconce fixtures were installed to improve illumination and aesthetics. During performances audio-visual and lighting systems are now all controlled from an automated AV control booth area custom designed by EI.
